Sugar Land Rotary Making a Difference in our Community by honoring first responders at our annual Fall Classic Fundraiser on Sept. 23!
Our hearts are filled with sadness about the recent devastation in Texas and in the Houston area due to Hurricane Harvey. At the same time, we are so grateful for those who are first responders and neighbors who continue to reach out to help those with tremendous needs. To be able to support Sugar Land Rotary Charities, we will hold our Fall Classic Fundraiser on Saturday, September 23 honoring first responders.
On June 21, Sugar Land Rotary installed a new slate of officers for 2017-18 that includes Jim Munnell, President; Margie Connelly, President-Elect; Rebecca Deurlein, Vice-President, Lerleen Hawkins, Secretary; Raleigh Bailes, Jr., Treasurer; Sergeant-at-Arms, Tabb Dye, and Rick Smith, Past-President. The newly installed Rotary president, Jim Munnell, thanked all of the club members and especially Rick Smith who served as president the past year. Under Smith's leadership, the club received an award as the No. 1 Medium-sized Club in District 5890.
President Rick Smith is installed to his position by District 5890 Governor Elect while his wife Kim looks on.
And congratulations to 2016 Rotarian of the Year Margie Connolly AND our Hall of Fame addition Robert Walters.

Sugar Land Rotary was honored to be able to donate $5000 each to the Fort Bend YMCA for their Summer Camp Program in the Four Corners Neighborhood of Fort Bend County AND to the Literacy Council of Fort Bend to aid in funding their GED program which teaches students what they need to know to get their GEDs to improve both their lives and the communities around them.
Sugar Land Rotary Club honored Fireman Johnathan Vance and Police Officer Tuan-Huy Tran as Fireman and Police Officer of the Year for the City of Sugar Land.  We had GREAT attendance and enjoyed hearing from both gentleman. In addition to our honorees we also had an opportunity to ask questions of Police Chief Doug Brinkley and Fire Chief Juan Adame of the City of Sugar Land. It was a great question and answer session where I think everyone learned a little more about the expectations of both departments for their personnel.
